Soc 204 of the family Summary of Article presentation # 23 4/4/2010 By: Annette Lareau Presented by: A. Unique Wardlaw and Marquette Branch The article we choose to present for the class of Sociology of the family was article #23 Unequal childhoods. The reason we choose to present this article is because this reading highlights the differences that a class standard can make in a person’s household and childhood. In this presentation we will inform the class about the differences in a children’s time use, language in the household and their interventions in institutions. Within the article of Unequal Childhoods, Annette Lareau explains how she came up with the differences in childrearing compared to social class. For Middle-class families she came up with the approach of concerted cultivation (Skolnick, and Skolnick 306-317) . This is where both black and white families tend to enroll their children in a number of age-specific activities that come to dominate family life and produce labor mainly for the mothers (Skolnick, and Skolnick 306-317) . “Parents see these activities as transmitting important life skills to children”
